They say that Falmouth has the spirit of the sea but, as well as that Maritime scene it is a place steeped in heritage and history and a place of creativity both in art and literature. The year is punctuated with carnivals and festivals; the Oyster Festival drawing the biggest crowds. Indeed, Falmouth has a growing reputation as a foodie town and one can almost eat around the world.
I love travel, but if I could no longer go anywhere else, I would be content in Falmouth as it offers year-round interest as well as an abundance of natural beauty.
Where else can one view spectacles like The Tall Ships or The Red Arrows in an amphitheatre-like harbour or bay, watch the goings on at a working dock, take boat trips, visit a museum, and explore castles, walk, coastal paths, and enjoy sub-tropical gardens and parks?
Where else can one choose from the necklace of beaches that fringe the bay and partake of a variety of water sports? All that with the choice of two cinemas, theatre space, bandstands, art galleries, library, a host of pubs and restaurants and an eclectic variety of shops.
